The rain has eased, so tonight we're going to take a walk around the neighbourhood at all the tackily-lit and decorated homes we've seen in our daytime travels.
Tacky to me only, of course, the 3yr old is mesmerised and thrilled people go to such trouble. So for that, I thank them.
God knows I wouldn't do it to my own house :)
We've invited around the paternals Christmas morning for Croissants and coffee so they can watch the boy open gifts. Later we'll be off to my mums.
Merry Christmas to all that read and comment - I love keeping this blog and am so inspired by those I read, and from the things you all say and do. I love the community, and I love the way there's kindreds out there that don't think it's at all weird to photograph the garden, your dinner, or the way light captures floating dustmites.
I've always done this, but before now, it was just a secret little thing I did for myself.
I thought i'd leave you with this great little song, a variation of "Winter Wonderland" that featured on the Christmas show of Spicks and Specks.
Merry Christmas !!
A Very Specky Winter Wonderland
Cricket’s on, are you listening
On my brow, sweat is glistening
Crackin a beer, we’re glad to be here
Christmas in a summer wonderland
Come around, bring your cossies
And some spray for the mozzies
We’re havin a lark
in the caravan park
Living in a summer wonderland
In the afternoon we’ll have a barbie
Even in a total fire ban
Marinate the bangers with a stubbie
And give a glass of sherry to your nan
Later on, we'll perspire,
As the temperature gets higher
(Santa) looks out of sorts
He should be in shorts
Christmas in a summer wonderland.
